Of course if you call your restaurant Trippa, it will be hard to think the menu has anything but meat. If anything, perhaps there might be cod tripe, but all in all, one will not think of vegetables. Instead, one will think there will be plenty of meat, including quinto quarto, which is less popular in Milan than in Rome. And indeed the establishment of Diego Rossi and Pietro Caroli is in Milan, in Via Vasari on the corner with Muratori, and perhaps this is also the reason of its immediate and extraordinary success—an exception to the rule.
Veal in tuna sauce according to Diego Rossi. The dish is not available unless he's at the restaurant
Diego Rossi: Aubergines alla romana, cacio e pepe sauce, mint
Diego Rossi: Salad of melon, barattiere, French beans, Giarratana onion, basil
Diego Rossi: Soup of onion from Castrofilippo and Acquaviva, castelmagno and croutons
Carpaccio of watermelon, rocket and Parmigiano from Diego Rossi
Salad of nasone tomatoes, aubergines and pesto, another vegetarian dish served at Trippa
Mandilli de sea, silky pasta with pesto, a very elegant traditional pasta dish from Liguria, which Diego Rossi serves in Milan
«Old man, you know what's my real dream? Opening a restaurant serving Vegetables with meat on the side». I can't wait.
